The story continues with Lucy aka Lucifer who happens to be a female version and Levi the hunky psychic.
Something is terribly wrong in heaven - thus Lucy to the rescue along with Levi.
There is plenty of action and steamy sex scenes to keep you entertained.
I myself still have a hard time picturing Lucy as Lucifer, but that's just me.
Overall I would recommend this story.

The Devil Inside

Another fast paced thrilling sequel to the first book that came out. There were a lot of unexpected twists and turns which made the story unpredictable and entertaining. I can’t wait to see what happens next.

Coming into this series on book 2 has me wanting to go back to the first book of the series to read for myself everything that happened prior to book 2. I volunteered to read this book for the author for my opinion. I have to say once I got started I couldn't put it down. The unique perspective of a female Lucifer is awesome! This book gives a quick synopsis of what happened in book one and it so nicely done that me I have an idea of the previous book that reading book 2 first didnt leave me wit ...more

The Devil Inside is the second book in the Hell's Gate series. This should not be read as a standalone as it starts where the cliffhanger in Straight To Hell left off. There is violence. There is sex so 18+.

The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat that info here. The author did a good job with the storyline that keeps you guessing what twists and turns will be revealed next. It definitely kept me riveted all the way to the end. I enjoyed this book and I am loo

Fun reinterpretation of Christian mythology

Interesting premise. Lucifer is female. God makes big mistakes. Heaven and Hell are corporate behemoths. The clever worldbuilding turned pages faster than the story. That's not to say the story isn't clever, too. The author gave the reader fun and funny characters with an interesting blend of and humor. On the down side, the book was a little too long. The murky middle drug on with a series of sex scenes and exposition. But the intriguing ending redeeme

I am enjoying this series. I love Lucy, but the other characters just seem underdeveloped and sometimes underused. I’m not too fond of Levi, he seems like an anchor dragging Lucy away from her full potential as the star of the series. Dacian is too uptight. The others haven’t been in enough scenes for me to know about them yet.
I think that this is a good series and Ms Hinchey is a good author. I will have to try some of her other books..

I am really enjoying this series. By now I have adjusted to Lucifer being a female.
If you want action and intrigue then this installment has it in spades.
The revenge that Lilith is seeking is unreal, plus the betrayal that Lucy experiences is
heart breaking.
I am looking forward to reading more.

I loved the first book but this one just blew me away. It kept me guessing all throughout and the ending had my mouth hanging open. I can't wait for the next book. Seriously hoping that it doesn't take to long.

I am absolutely loving this series! Lucifer aka Lucy is completely unexpected and yet so completely perfect. The unorthodox Lucy is so much fun to read about. Really looking forward to book 3!!

Hell’s Gate:
Straight to Hell #1 - A pretty good twist on Lucifer and Lucifer's story, I like it. Jane wrote another good, fast paced, action packed, intriguing story. Her characters are fun and believable regardless of where they originate. The twisting plot keeps the reader glued to the pages until the end . . . where we get perturbed to find a cliffhanger.

Yes, a miserable cliffhanger! The other thing that bothers me about this fab read is Lucy is easily distracted at the wrong times. I find t

😭 Be ready for an emotional journey that will drag you through the pits of hell 🔥 , across the gold lined ☀️streets of heaven, passed the darkened alleys 🌁 of earth and across a multiverse 🌐 or two
Gabriel and Michael are planning on taking over heaven and earth but who is the true mastermind behind the mutiny?
Lucy knows only she can stop the chaos but she can not help but ask herself where is Dad and why has he not stepped in? What happened to Declan's memories?

For the love of all that is holy...........oh wait...........UGH! First I have to say, normally, I take a star away for a cliffhanger. And wow did this end with one. The only reason I decided against it, I just knew it was gonna happen. Still.....UGH!!!!!! That said, this book was amazing. Which means the final ending will be epic. Ms. Hinchey has created a world of characters that make you laugh, hope, cry and want to fight for them. I do miss getting a POV from other characters throughout the ...more

Recommends it for: Anyone who loves action, romance, and a different way of looking at the universe.
The Devil Inside, the second in the Hell’s Gate series, was great fun to read. It has wonderful characters, lots of action, romance, and a quirky look at Heaven, Hell, and Earth. It’s definitely a book for adults as it contains adult situations and language.

Lucifer’s father, G-d, has gone missing. Heaven is in disarray, Earth is threatened, and a surprise being awaits Lucy, hidden beneath the town of Shadow Falls. Can she, Levi, and Dacian find her father, deal with the being, and her decidedly

I liked this second book in the Hell's Gate series. Lucy is on the warpath after her lover, Levi, is sucked through a portal into another dimension. While she is glad to learn he is armed with the sword forged in Heaven, she now has no way to open another portal and rescue him. He is only human after all.

Things only get worse when Lucy learns that her father, God, has been missing for years. She has been down in her own domain, Hell, making it into a smooth, running machine that punishes evil li
